We don’t know how many of the six remaining slots are already filled on Iowa’s 2013-2014 nonconference men’s basketball schedule. For this exercise, let’s assume none.
I’m assuming the six slots will all be filled by home games, since five of the seven games we know about are away from Iowa City. And of those six games, I’d think three or four of them will be tomato cans that every major-college plays at home in the nonconference. If that’s wrong, my bad.
But with that assumption, I’m asking you to write your own list of six teams to come to Carver-Hawkeye Arena this November and December. I have no illusions that you will be realistic about it, but … try. You aren’t going to get Kentucky, Louisville, Duke and North Carolina.
Here are the games we know:
Nov. 10 — vs. Nebraska-Omaha (home)
Nov. 28-30 – Bahamas (3 games)
Dec. 3 – vs. Notre Dame (home)
Dec. 7 — vs. Drake (Des Moines)
Dec. 13 – at Iowa State
So, what are the other six games? And if you just want to name three and assume the other three will be rum-dums, feel free.
